[I am in Canada at the Toronto International Film Festival and running non-stop, this was an easy post to pull together and I hope you enjoy it!]

What’s better than a once in a lifetime dinner at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon (at the MGM in Las Vegas)? A second one..with photos!

The menu decouverte de saison (seasonal discovery menu) is eight courses and it is amazing. It is not inexpensive, but if the opportunity arises, cease it!

L’amuse-bouche: avocado and cilantro flavored grapefruit gelee (l’avocat rafraichi d’une fine gelée de pamplemousse à la coriande):

Les Tomates: heirloom tomato salad, basil oil and fleur de sel (les tomates du jarden avec un filet d’huile de basilic et fleur de sel):

Le crabe roayle: king crab a la plancha, vegetables with lemongrass oil (crabe royale doré à plancha, arlequin de légumes à l’huile de citronelle):

L’asperge: green asparagus kebab with quail egg “mirror,” shimeji and iberico ham (aspetge verte à l’oeuf de caille “mirroir,” shimeji et jambon Ibérique:

Wonderful bread available through out the entire meal:

La sole: sole filet and baby leeks, buttery shellfish sauce with lime and ginger (la sole et jeunes poireuax dans une nage au lime et gingembre):

La caille: foie gras stuffed free-range quail with mashed potatoes (caille au foie gras, caramélisée avec une pomme purée):

La fraise: strawberries with moscato gelee, white chocolate crunch and lemon sorbet (fraise en gelée au Moscato d’Asti, croquant de chocolat blanc et sorbet au citron):

  1. The food looks amazing! I love a typical French dinner 7 courses cheese and all! I wish I got to do it more often, living in France, but it is still a twice a year event.

  2. I think the best thing I EVER EVER ate in a restaurant was a matchstick potato nest with a poached egg and caviar from L’Atelier in the Publicis Drugstore in Paris. I don’t remember anything else I ate that day.
